+ FROM ALL MUSIC GUIDE (2004)
+ An impressive and delightfully exhausting 76 tracks capture the spirit of the Beatles' music on this triple-CD compilation that imitates 'The White Album' in look, just as the immaculate Boston Does the Beatles double LP from 1988 did. There are so many highlights in the over 220 minutes of music that it is hard to be fair to all involved by leaving out names, when so much of this is so very good. Tribute albums are one of the better ways to hear great musicians in the new millennium, and talent coordinator Gary Pig Gold along with producers Jaimie Vernon, Jim Hoeck, and co-producer Terry Draper (of Klaatu) and the others involved all get thumbs up for doing a superb job. One of the better tribute projects you'll find, up there with Russ Regan's All This and World War II double-LP Beatles tribute/film soundtrack.- Joe Viglione
